Sohar welcomes Dubai logistics firm

Muscat: Centre Point Logistics, a Dubai logistics player, has signed with Oman’s Sohar Port and Freezone to manage a 50,000 sq m plot of land on the Freezone.

Saleh Saeed Lootah, chairman of Centre Point Logistics, commented: “With our local and regional growth and changing dynamics of UAE logistics and supply chain market, there has arisen a more challenging business environment that needs ‘out-of-the-box’ thinking in order to provide more tailored solutions that meet the changing needs of customers. From the time business negotiations began, CPL has received a welcoming response from Sohar Freezone and we’re excited to start operations.”

CPL plans to have its Oman Logistics Hub ready at the beginning of first-quarter of 2015, and will offer its services to local as well as to international companies.
